It is so beyond stupid that it is hard to believe. Like what was the motivation for it? Who is dumb enough to do that in the course of their employment?

Not saying it is impossible just that it does not pass the sniff test right now.

Massive wtf if true though.

Would be a huge story if true. So it’s obviously not. Do AO staff even sell tickets to the game? Isn’t that the ticketing mob’s job.
No one has denied it didn’t happen and in fact acknowledge that it did, they just can’t agree on who gave the order as police deny saying the directive came from them. They were told not to sell to a particular group of intoxicated Aboriginals but the manager “misinterpreted” and thought they said ALL.

It’s not big news because it’s Aboriginal people and no one gives a shit
